This is a STUNNING hostel, located in the Waterlooplein area, which is just a 10 minute walk from the start of the center of the city, and just 5 minutes from the metro and supermarkets. It is beautifully designed and there is every amenity available. I did not stay in a dorm room, but in a the Double Private Superior which was fantastic,. It came with it's own bathroom (a huge bath and shower) and en-suite loo. GREAT hostel, GREAT staff. GREAT fun.

Good hostel. Good location. I don't know if was because of the winter but it was not a good vibe for party. If you are travelling by yourself maybe is not the best option. If you are in a group you should definitely go there! Good facilities and location (near supermarket, liquor store and subway station). You can rent a bike near there too. Showers and toilets were very clean and the room is good.

I loved this hostel! I went during the down-season for traveling in Amsterdam, so the hostel wasn't packed, but I really like to low-key energy to the place. Not really the kind of place if you're looking to party like crazy, but there's plenty of that in Amsterdam. If you're more into something that's really nicely decorated and clean and beautiful with a huge common area, this is a great hostel to stay at!

Excellent hostel, exactly what I was looking for while I was in Amsterdam working for a week. Not a party hostel, but very social still. The staff were very friendly and would socialize with you. I'd recommend to anybody going to Amsterdam

Really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely recommend it to others visiting the city, Nearest tram stop half a block away from the hostel. The staff were great and recommended places to see-not the obvious tourist places.

It was nice, there wasn't much atmosphere at the hostel but besides that it was perfect. I really liked the introduction I got of the place and of Amsterdam.

I was well received and the overall environment of the hostel was good. I appreciated very much the common areas and the plan of activities for the nights. The location was not as good as I was expecting but, it was manageable. The main drawback was really the price... I've been in hostels in all Europe and this was, actually, the most expensive I had, and I really believe the conditions didn't justify it.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your time at Ecomama! We are located in Centrum, meaning that all the main attractions of the city are easy walkable. We also have fab new bikes for rental for those who want to ride like a local. That this hostel was more expensive than other parts of Europe is reflective of Amsterdam prices and not our hostel specifically. Love Ecomama.

I loved the hostel itself, and the staff were really great. But not good as a solo traveller. May have just been the crowd but I found it hard to meet people. Also so expensive!! But definitely one of the most nicely decorated hostels I ever stated in.

We are pleased to hear that you appreciated the effort the staff puts into providing stellar customer service and ensuring that the aesthetics of the hostel are pleasing to our guests. It is unfortunate that you found it hard to meet people, our lounge, dining table and tipi are generally excellent venues for socializing. Additionally, we organize a variety of activities for you to participate in throughout the week. Please ensure you come back in the summer to enjoy Amsterdam in the sunshine.

A little bit expensive but I guess that's how it is in Amsterdam. We didn't find anything cheaper in the city. The showers were good, but the sinks in the shared bathroom where sometimes a little bit nasty.

Only stayed at Eco mama for two nights and it was a short but very sweet stay. Felt very welcomed by the staff who pointed out all the best places to visit/eat on a map of Amsterdam. The decor inside the communal area was beautiful and our double superior room was also, with the pleasant surprise of a huge bath! I would have liked a full length mirror and some teabags for the kettle but none the less Eco mama was a fabulous place to stay in a great location.

Most beautiful hostel we've ever seen and great value for money too! Located a bit out of the madness of centrum which is nice for a change but you can still walk there in 10/15 mins. Would stay again!

10/10 would stay there again. Perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam but not too far out of the way. Beautiful inside. Great coffee (coming from a coffee snob). Really good value for what it is!

Second time I've stayed at this hostel on this trip and I thoroughly recommend it. I'm sure I will be back again. The beds are ridiculously comfortable, everything is super clean, the people are friendly, the design of the place makes it easy to make new friends and the location is within an easy bike ride to anywhere you want to go in Amsterdam. Perfect!
